Anemia is a condition in which there is a deficiency of red cells or hemoglobin in the blood, resulting in pallor and weakness. According to the World Health Organization report, anemia affects 1.62 billion people, which corresponds to 24.8% of the world population. The highest prevalence is in preschool-age children and the lowest prevalence is amongst men. However, the population group with the greatest number of individuals affected is non-pregnant women.
